The Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Office of International Students and Scholars at Tulane University held the annual Fall Harvest Festival on Nov. 26 in the Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life. The event is a Tulane tradition that supports the student, faculty and staff community who may not be able to go home for Thanksgiving. Attendees enjoyed a Thanksgiving dinner while learning about aspects of American culture surrounding the holiday.
